Duke Divinity School Presents Christian Leadership Conference
Durham, NC - Duke Divinity School will present a leadership conference Oct. 15-16 that explores the actions that seminaries and clergy can take to inspire and prepare leaders for ministry.
"Form/Reform: Cultivating Christian Leaders" which will include lectures, seminars and worship, takes place at the Divinity School on Duke University's West Campus.
Fuller Theological Seminary President Richard J. Mouw will deliver two lectures, drawing on his perspectives as leader of one of the largest multidenominational seminaries in the world. Mouw, a scholar in the field of Christian ethics and philosophy, is also president of the Association of Theological Schools.
Other participants include:
-- Andy Crouch, executive producer of "This is Our City," a multi-year project featuring documentary video, reporting and essays about the ways in which cities contribute to and undermine God's purpose for human beings. He will deliver a performance-lecture, "Live More Musically."

Coakley is a leading authority on the dialogue between science and religion. Her work also focuses on the significance of prayer and the disciplines of Christian spirituality.
